Sunbaby Size 1 or 2

Confused with this sizing. Anyone buy the size 1 or 2 and see any major difference?

I want to buy for the new baby - my experience is DD was a little chunky when she was little but slendered out. She is more of a medium build. Also, diapers shrink a little like any fabric I've noticed...so should I get size 2 to be safe?

Oh decisions!!

I have both. I like the fit much better on the size 2. It will last a little longer than the size one too

I bought some in Nov before there was a size option. What size would they be considered?
I find that the hip snaps are tight around my little ones middle but not tight enough around his legs. He is probably about 12lbs and he is almost 2 months old. They fit my 3 year old pretty well tho.

I would stick with a size 2 also. Like pp said, they will last longer.

I got ones in November too and those are considered the sz 2. I am having the same issue bc ds2 is 18mos and ds3 will be here in April. I know the smaller ones would fit ds3 better but having two different os sizes bugs me a bit

Re: Sunbaby Size 1 or 2

Size 1 are definitely shorter in rise and tighter around the legs. For 2 moms I know, they fit their newborns (which is very uncommon for a "one-size" diaper). I didn't start using these diapers until my girls were probably 6 months old. They fit well at the medium rise then, but I had to open them up all the way pretty soon after that, probably around 8 months. My babes are 14 months old now and 19, 21, and 22 pounds. The size 1 are really too small for the 2 larger girls but still fit the 19lb skinnier one, though they are even tight on her. The size 2 fit all three of them now on the middle rise snaps, though they all fit totally unsnapped. I don't know how the size 2 would fit on a newborn baby though. I think for their price, you should get some size 1 for a newborn stash plus lots of size 2 since they'll last longer. I like Sunbaby dipes, but I have to admit that my go-to diapers are now Alva since they are super cheap ($2.50-$3 coop prices) and they run larger so I know for sure they'll fit through potty training. LOVE 'em! If I had it to do all over again, I think I'd get size 1 sunbaby for the newborn/little baby stash and Alva for 4-6 months old and on. It would still be cheaper than most other systems!
